Play the new Rise of Maya Slot from Netent at LeoVegas Casino

Febuary 6, 2020

Travel back in time with LeoVegas Casino and witness the Mayan civilization in all its glory while playing the new NetEnt slot, complete with free spins, scatters, wilds, and more.

The Classic period was essentially the golden age for the Mayan civilization as they made remarkable cultural advances during this time. The Mayans had a strong belief in the cyclical nature of life which meant that nothing was ever born and nothing ever died. These beliefs also provided inspiration to their innovative views of the gods and the cosmos. The Mayan's cosmological views even offered inspiration to their imaginative efforts, including architecture, mathematics, and astronomy. It's for this very reason that NetEnt developed their latest slot creation based on the Mayan civilization and the dark realm known as Xibalba.

The new Mayan-inspired slot from NetEnt casino software is called Rise of Maya. The action unfolds in Xibalba, an extremely dark realm that you will need to carefully navigate to eventually end up in paradise where you'll be handsomely awarded lucrative rewards and instant cash prizes. The new Rise of Maya slot is exceptionally well presented on 5 reels with 3 rows along with 10 non-adjustable paylines. You will also appreciate the fact that the slot comes with an enticing selection of bonus features, including a second chance scatter feature, a scatter nudge feature, scatter symbols, a free spin feature, and wild symbols along with a payout of up to 250 times your stake.

Special Features in Rise of Maya Slot

You will immediately notice that NetEnt's new Rise of Maya slot comes equipped with four different wild icons. You will essentially be treated to a regular wild serpent icon, a stacked wild serpent icon, and two expanding wild serpent icons to significantly increase your chances of winning on the reel set.

The regular and expanding wild serpent icons will be present in the base game, while the stacked wild serpent icons will only be available during the free spins round. All four wild icons have the ability to stand in for other symbols. However, none of them will be able to substitute for the scatter icon in the game. The two expanding wild serpent icons can either expand down or up to cover all slot positions on a reel. You will also appreciate the fact that the stacked wild serpent icon can expand across an entire reel. However, this can only take place on a hot reel.

The gold Mayan mask will act as the scatter icon on the reels and you will be required to land at least 3 gold mask scatter icons, or three standard serpent wild icons, anywhere in view on the reel set to activate the free spins round. Once the free spins round is activated, you will receive 15 free games and all the reels that contain a gold mask scatter icon or a wild serpent icon will change into hot reels. The hot reels will basically offer you the chance to get fully-stacked serpent wild icons to further boost your chances of winning big. You will even get the opportunity to re-trigger the free spins round where you can earn up to 24 free games.

The slot is already extremely popular among slot enthusiasts around the world as it comes equipped with a scatter nudge feature. This feature is activated at random and will take place after any non-winning spin. When the feature makes an appearance on the reels, you will notice that a scatter or wild icon will be nudged onto the reels to hopefully trigger the free spins round or to give you a winning combination.

Finally, the new Rise of Maya slot also provides a Bonus Bet: Second Chance feature which you can activate or deactivate within the game. If you would like to use this feature, simply choose the option on the lefthand side of the reel set. Please keep in mind, however, that this feature will cost you double your total stake to increase your chances of getting extra wild and scatter icons on the reels to make it easier to trigger the free spins round. For instance, should you only have two wild or scatter icons on the reels, the second chance feature will unlock and hopefully give you a third scatter or wild icon through a free re-spin.

Symbol Selection in Rise of Maya Slot

NetEnt's new Rise of Maya slot takes place in a dark Mayan temple and the software provider used an excellent mixture of symbols to further enhance the overall look and feel of the game. For instance, you will be greeted by five Mayan masks that will act as the high-paying symbols in the game, each presented in a unique color. The highest paying mask will fetch you a lucrative cash prize worth 250 times your stake when 5 are displayed on a single payline. You will also benefit from a variety of Royals acting as the low-valued symbols and will range from Ace through to 10.

Betting Options in Rise of Maya Slot

As previously mentioned, the slot is restricted by 10 fixed paylines. However, NetEnt included a wide selection of betting options to make up for this. Whether you are a newcomer or a slot veteran, there is definitely a betting size that will suit your pocket. For instance, the lowest bet per spin amount is only $0.10, while the highest bet per spin will peak at $150.00 to accommodate the Canadian online casino high rollers out there.
